Starcraft Owners Roll Call

Since Starcraft is a Jayco brand with many similar models and due to recent requests from Starcraft owners this thread was created for them. There are several Starcraft owners here on the forum, so post pics, descriptions, questions or comments about your rig here.

Thanks Lee, you da man. We are scheduled to take delivery on a 2012 Starcraft Autumn Ridge 309 BHL this Wed. We are trading in our 2011 Forest River Surveyor SP-260 on this unit. We are going to have MUCH more room and MUCH more natural light in the Autumn Ridge. From what I've read about Starcraft and Jayco, this should be a good unit. Just have to do a complete walk through at the dealer before taking possession.

@ Quahog: Here is a link to the TT we are getting on the dealer's website. Autumn Ridge 309 BHL. We would have gotten it this week but they had to get ready for the RV show in Raleigh NC this weekend and couldn't get it preped in time.

Don't have any pics handy, but love my 2010 Autumn Ridge 246RKS

Here are its specs

So far been a good trailer. I did my the converter from the back of the trailer to the front so that the batteries can get a charge. But a lot of manufacturers make that silly mistake.

New Starcraft 235FB

First time TT owner and taking delivery of the Starcraft 235FB this Saturday, the 24th.

Looking forward to following the forums for opinions and advice as I am sooooooo green to rv-ing having done the tent thing for years.

Nice to find some Starcraft owners, hope I made a good choice.

We actually picked ours up today The overall quality appears to SO much better than in the Surveyor we traded in. Screws on the Autumn Ridge where there were staples on the Surveyor, better wood, ect... I'll post some pics as soon as I get some taken and uploaded.

@airborne8: You made a good choice. The Autumn Ridge line seems to be very well built. If you have a family, you can outgrown that one. We had our Surveyor SP-260 for exactly 1 year and we traded up for more room. Our history went--tent to popup to TT to larger, better TT. We love the room in the 309BHL. It's me, my wife, two girls and usually one of their friends. Now we have room for extended family also.
